After spending hours and hours on my last sweater, I decided it was time for a quick knit. I dug through my stash and found a few hundred yards of Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino in Redwood. I chose to knit Heidi Kirrmaier's Circumnavigate and in a week I had a cowl.
I knit at a looser gauge than the pattern called for, so my finished object is a bit longer. I can wrap it around my neck twice without it being too tight.
